Microsoft has barred access to the latest Windows 10 feature upgrade, told those who did run it to keep their hands off their PCs, and warned people who had manually downloaded the build - but not yet installed it - to discard the disk image."If you were gullible enough to believe the breathless reviews about a product that's marginally better than what you have, and you trusted Microsoft enough to install it on your machine as quickly as you could, the joke's on you," said Woody Leonard, who runs the AskWoody Windows tip website and writes the "Woody on Windows" column for Computerworld.Windows 10 Home users - predominantly consumers - are forced to accept every feature upgrade and are not meant to delay the installation of those upgrades, or the monthly waves of security and non-security updates.Alkove was then director of program management for Microsoft's enterprise group."By the time Current branch for Business machines are updated, the changes will have been validated by millions of Insiders, consumers and customers' internal test processes for several months, allowing updates to be deployed with this increased assurance of validation."In that way, consumers running Windows 10 became an essential part of Microsoft's testing regime in a way that people running previous Windows' editions, which at best offered limited-time betas prior to launch, never were.

DURHAM, N.C. -- Biomedical engineers at Duke University have found a critical component for growing self-healing muscle tissues from adult muscle -- the immune system.The discovery in mice is expected to play an important role in studying degenerative muscle diseases and enhancing the survival of engineered tissue grafts in future cell therapy applications.The results appeared online October 1 in Nature Biomedical Engineering.In 2014, the group led by Nenad Bursac, professor of biomedical engineering at Duke, debuted the world's first self-healing, lab-grown skeletal muscle.The milestone was achieved by taking samples of muscle from rats just two days old, removing the cells, and "planting" them into a lab-made environment perfectly tailored to help them grow."Adding various drugs and growth factors known to help muscle repair had little effect, so I started to consider adding a supporting cell population that could react to injury and stimulate muscle regeneration," said Juhas.

Facebook’s privacy problems severely escalated Friday when the social network disclosed that an unprecedented security issue, discovered September 25, impacted almost 50 million user accounts.Unlike the Cambridge Analytica scandal, in which a third-party company erroneously accessed data that a then-legitimate quiz app had siphoned up, this vulnerability allowed attackers to directly take over user accounts.“We may never know,” Guy Rosen, Facebook’s vice president of product, said on a call with reporters Friday.“If the attacker exploited custom and isolated vulnerabilities, and the attack was a highly targeted one, there simply might be no suitable trace or intelligence allowing investigators to connect the dots,” says Lukasz Olejnik, a security and privacy researcher and member of the W3C Technical Architecture Group.“I’m glad that we found this, and we were able to fix the vulnerability and secure the accounts, but it definitely is an issue that it happened in the first place.”The social network says its investigation into the breach began on September 16, when it saw an unusual spike in users accessing Facebook.

Smartphones offer built-in editing, but dedicated cameras have better image quality — Zeiss thinks photographers shouldn’t have to choose between the two.The Zeiss ZX1 is a compact full-frame camera with Adobe Lightroom CC built-in — and a touchscreen that rivals the size of a smartphone.Announced during Photokina on Thursday, September 27, the concept camera is slated for arrival early in 2019.While many companies outsource the sensor, Zeiss is making both the lens and sensor for the ZX1, allowing the optics and the sensor to be specially calibrated to work together.This, Zeiss says, offers “first-class image quality.” The 37.4-megapixel full-frame sensor is paired with a Zeiss Distagon 35mm f/2 T* built-in.But the sensor and lens combo isn’t what’s so different about the camera — the ZX1 has Adobe Lightroom CC built in.

“The Whopper lives in a bun mansion—just like you.”Unless you’re Sir Mix-a-Lot, that’s probably not literally true.But hey, when your ad’s copywriter is an artificial intelligence, you have to give it some credit for trying to connect with us weirdo organ-sack humans.Burger King’s newest TV ad campaign claims each spot was “created by artificial intelligence,” an explanation that precedes some truly bizarre voice-overs, such as, “Bed of lettuce for you to sleep on, bed of mayonnaise for extra sleep,” and, “Burger King logo’s chicken is the new potato.”In a statement announcing the campaign—which will air during prime time on cable networks including MTV, History, TBS, Adult Swim and E!—the brand refers to as the creation of “a new deep learning algorithm that could give a glimpse into what the future of marketing and communications could look like.”It’s all one big joke at AI’s expense.

This December a set of autonomous vehicles will start roaming the streets of Columbus, Ohio in an effort to turn this bustling midwestern community into the first smart city.The project, which is part of the Smart Columbus and DriveOhio initiatives, is the first step in launching a fully autonomous shuttle route in the city.“We’re proud to have the first self-driving shuttle in Ohio being tested on the streets of Columbus,” said Mayor Andrew J. Ginther.“This pilot will shape future uses of this emerging technology in Columbus and the nation.Residents win when we add more mobility options to our transportation ecosystem – making it easier to get to work, school or local attractions.”Michigan-based May Mobility provided the shuttles and the team is training the autonomous vehicles to navigate Columbus streets.

When an app wants to access data from your smartphone's motion or light sensors, iOS and Android require that it make that capability clear.But a team of researchers has discovered that those rules don't apply to websites loaded in mobile browsers, which can often often access an array of device sensors without any notifications or permissions whatsoever.It's what helps those services automatically adjust their layout, for example, when you switch your phone's orientation.But the researchers—Anupam Das of North Carolina State University, Gunes Acar of Princeton University, Nikita Borisov of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and Amogh Pradeep of Northeastern University—found that the standards allow for unfettered access to certain sensors.But the researchers note that on a malicious website, the information could fuel various types of attacks, like using ambient light data to make inferences about a user's browsing, or using motion sensor data as a sort of keylogger to deduce things like PIN numbers."Implementations may consider permissions or visual indicators to signify the use of sensors by the page," the standard suggests.

Oscar-winning screenwriter Jordan Peele is taking on an iconic role: host of the The Twilight Zone.Peele tweeted a video Thursday featuring his voice alternating with Rod Serling's famous voiceover announcing the viewer's journey into another dimension.Serling was creator and narrator of the classic science fiction anthology show, which originally premiered in 1959.Peele -- who took home the best screenwriting Oscar for his directorial debut 2017's Get Out -- was already on board as an executive producer of the reboot.But it was undecided if he'd narrate as Serling had."Too many times this year it's felt we were living in a twilight zone, and I can't think of a better moment to reintroduce it to modern audiences," Peele said in a statement when his involvement with the show was first announced.

Elon Musk’s automaker was the first to produce battery-powered vehicles that could stay on the road for hundreds of miles without stopping to recharge.Drivers finally had good reason to take their electrics far beyond their daily trundlings between work, home, and the grocery store—but the infrastructure to keep them charged up didn’t exist.So Tesla built them an international network of Superchargers—stations where they could stop for a spell and plug in, reaching an 80 percent charge in a little more than half an hour.As Porsche prepares to launch its fully electric car, the Taycan sedan (née the Mission E concept), it faces a different problem: How to stand out in a field full of cool, capable EVs from the likes of Mercedes-Benz, Jaguar Land Rover, BMW, Audi, and others, along with old dog Tesla.Porsche’s solution, though, looks a lot like Tesla’s.Unable to offer a rousing engine note or beautifully precise gearbox, the automaker this week unveiled the “electric pit stop”—a setup that can add 250 miles worth of charge to a battery in just 15 minutes.
